Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Hyacinth Oneta Small-Brome was born March 5, 1946 in Barbados, West Indies. She was born to the late Clarine Small and Iradene Walcott. She was known most fondly as Oneta and the middle child of three girls. Growing up, she always emitted a ray of kindness, generosity, and intelligence. In school, she was very gifted and had no trouble excelling academically. She attended Arlington High School in St. Michael, Barbados and graduated in 1963. Growing up on a rural Caribbean island, the children were required to help out in the day to day chores of the family. Hard work was never anything Oneta would shy away from. She was always devoted in the tasks she was given.
In 1968, Hyacinth came to the United States and planted her roots in Brooklyn, New York. She was devoted to raising her three daughters. She loved to travel as much as she could and loved to take a dip in the nearest ocean she would meet. In 1995, she became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and was very devoted to her faith and ministry. One of her greatest joys was working as a regular pioneer, full-time in the ministry. She was able to do this from 1995 to 2000, when she suffered a major stroke. This did not dampen her zeal. She took every opportunity to auxiliary pioneer as often as she could. She loved sharing the hope Jehovah gave her with others she met in the ministry.
She moved to The Poconos in Pennsylvania until 2005 and then made her final moved to Fortson, Georgia. Despite the many setbacks and health complications, she maintained a positive disposition and always showed tenacity and grace. Those who knew her best would agree that she lived her life to the fullest potential.
